Pro Tip: Illegal Pete’s Soundcheck

Soundcheck-511x3401If you don’t know, Illegal Pete’s is a lot more than a sweet happy hour and Mission-style burritos.

This laid-back, tattoo-friendly Mexican bar/restaurant also serves up loads of community support to musicians, nonprofits, charities, comedians, and artists.   Perhaps most well-known for their Starving Artists Program, which provides free meals to touring bands, Illegal Pete’s is now offering some of that same love to local comedy/music fans through its Soundcheck promotion.

How does it work?  Well, just show-up with a physical (read: not on your phone) same-day ticket before or after the show, purchase an entree over 6 bucks, be 21 or over, and get hooked up with a FREE draft beer.  Free rhymes with me, yo.  A particularly convenient deal if you are attending a show at the Hi-Dive, Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret, the Summit Music Hall, the Paramount TheatreComedy Works Downtown, the Marquis TheaterFox Theatre, or the Boulder Theater.  Haaaaaaaaaaaaay…
